I purchased a new 1895GBL on Gunbroker for $495. I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of the stock, the blueing, and the wood-to-metal fit of this firearm. It is actually better than either of my JM 336s. I worked up some test loads and took it to the range. My best load was 60.0C of IMR3031 under a Hornady RN 350 gr. bullet. My 100yd groups averaged 1.33" with this load. The recoil was not nearly as bad as I expected and did not impact my shooting. By the way, I was able to recover one of the Hornady RN 350s. It expanded beautifully to .77". I am ready for deer season!
